in september 2003, it all started with a compilation, and now it all ends with a compilation. what else could be such a good way to witness the label's progress through almost 2 years of its existence, as well as the progress of its artists, especially with some of those featured in this final compilation having been featured in surfaces netlabel's very first collective release? here are 11 tracks that trip from sparse ambience to soothing noisy walls of sound. 'by way of conclusion' may easily...

as you remember, lithuanian artist electro has contributed a track to surfaces' starting release, [srfc001] va -- surfaces compilation. now it's time for a full album. 'moments of absence' is a gallery of darker sides of music. electro is very much into dubby minimalistic drum sequences, fast and slow breakbeats, dark digitized atmospherics and reverberated tripping sounds. the work is quite diverse, which is an obvious plus: from dubby minimalism to dark downbeat, deep static techno and even...

'lawn world' by monoculture is surfaces' second northamerican release. this work is highly eclectic - easy synthetic melodies are interlaced with clicky rhythms, followed by low drones, oriental ambience, guitar and piano sounds, among other. all together these elements form an imaginative and complex (almost) easy listening work that is between the territories of particular styles. with its gradation of tones and moods, this album tells a story with unexpected turns for more info on (and more...

this record was waiting to be released for quite a bit of time. it's hard enough to release a non-standard music album commercially in lithuania, so many people here and elsewhere could have never heard it and it would have simply been lying on the composer's and several other people's shelves. surfaces netlabel exists to find such music and share it with the wider audience, so finally this album is out and available for listening the music here is a subtle mixture of deep and dark ambient...

smbp (sunday morning brain production) is an electronic duo from italy. this recording that they present on surfaces, '12.11 ep', is quite hard to classify. it is dubby, slow-paced and metronomic, filled by echoes and pierced by panned effects. geometric rhytmic structures and isolated ambience allow for architectural analogies. this music is best described by being called a sonic reflection of functional and monotonous bauhaus architecture. precise straight lines are interrupted by scarce...

[x] is a disseminated dance along the way you inspire multilayered experimental. intuitive precision. warm ambiences. high-pitched movements. textured flux. intersected fragments....

farid aliyev, originally from azerbaidjan and now residing in lithuania, plays the guitar. he plays it as if it was pure air, though. in this moodshifting recording, farid takes the live played guitar improvisations and feeds them through diverse dsp modules. the result is neither acoustic nor electronic. one thing for sure - it is very organic and flowing. the composer takes us on a trip just as he promises: from one to zero, from static to dynamic, from subtle silence to waves of drones, from...

although young, lys is already quite well-known in the lithuanian electronica scene, with a number of live performances in various locations, a track in va -- surfaces and a full-length album naunuee, released on sutemos.net. lys is able to maintain a unique, unmistakably recognizable style of his own, which is a rare thing in contemporary ambient/idm this minialbum is a short but rich sound narrative in dark, ephemerous and transparent tones and spaces. lys manages to weave in some sounds that...

surfaces geography goes across the ocean with this new addition to the catalogue. it is time for american artists pelpp and a. vanvranken, who have released 'pedal', a full-length album of warm minimal electronica in usa a couple of months ago, to introduce an equally warm and distinctive ep called 'rake' as the 13th surfaces release. given the superb quality of their music, this addition is more than welcome the sounds create a perfect mood before the holidays, with emotional atmospheric pads,...

garso zona (audio zone) is a continuous project of sound and video art, experimental electronic music. it started in 2003 winter as an intervention into the peripheral industrial place in kaunas, lithuania, baltic sign hangar, near the sculpture zone. the basic intention of the project was the aim to represent the lithuanian scene of experimental electronics. in the art cartography of 2003 garso zona was marked by dotted line, the motion to the margin, industrial place, used for aesthetics of...

this release is yet another full work by an artist featured in the very first release by surfaces. this time it's rising_spirit's turn. while he has been active organisig and participating in various events and performances during the last year, he also found time to complete this collection of eight tracks, the name of which can be translated from lithuanian as 'i don't remember if i slept' talking about the music, it can be said that rising_spirit finds a balance between creating idm-esque...

the last track from this debut ep, "27 ~ 28" was heard on [srfc001], the surfaces starting compilation. now the whole ep is out, with somewhat better sound quality, cover art and even some free poetic text variations that make the sounds more concrete and associative (well, almost...) musically, this release is hardly categorisable. it has elements of glitch, some industrial, retro electronica, and indie pop. "monday" is reminiscent of 60's sound experiments, with its...

gintas k's music can be described as microsound or noise, but his purpose is not to create within the frames of these styles. his primary interest is studying the physical effects of sound on the human psyche. in result, gintas k utilizes sine waves, expressive synthesized tones, noizes and complex rhythmical structures. surprisingly, the result is not mechanistic - rather, it is quite organic and flowing in addition, gintas k is (and has been) involved in numerous conceptual art actions that...

after a summer pause surfaces returns with a release that adds some summer variety to its catalogue. this time it's a warm electro-/indie-pop ep by fingus, who was featured on [srfc001] va -- surfaces. the mood of this work is intimate and slightly melancholic, thus this release is perfect for midsummer daydreaming this release will surely be a bit of a trick for the non-lithuanian listeners. all track titles and spoken word lyrics on 'eskizas:rytas' are in lithuanian, which might add an exotic...

the work on this dayeight's half-hour long composition has been started even before the work on 'poemepostmoderne' ([srfc006]), but took longer to finish. the audio track is meant to be a part of an audiovisual installation of the same title (a collaboration between dayeight and m3wE of miglos_lab). while the visual part is still being created, you can listen to the full audio version in this release flower_tv is a symbol for a utopic world where life is taken out of the context. this world is...
